RIO VISTA — Two council seats will be up for grabs in November, with Tim Kubli and Constance Boulware seeing their terms end.
The incumbents opted for different paths.
Kubli, former CEO of the Bank of Rio Vista, is not planning to run for his seat, saying, “I have not enjoyed it,” while citing the “wait-and-see” and “kick-it-around” concept of council business.
“My plan right now is not to run again,” he said. “A few people might be able to talk me into it, but I doubt it. It would probably come down to who’s running. If I felt it was going to be really bad for the community based on who’s running, I might.”
Kubli was appointed to the seat in August 2012 after Fred Kogler resigned two months earlier.
Boulware plans a run to retain her seat for a second term – she’s waiting for the candidate filing time in order to take out her papers.
“Things are looking really great in Rio Vista with RioVision,” Boulware said. “My campaign last time was ‘working together for progress’ and I think we’re doing that with RioVision.”
Boulware commented favorably on the new city manager, Tim Chapa, and said she’s “really excited about running for re-election.”
“I want to be part of that,” she said of RioVision and Rio Vista’s future.
The Rio Vista City Council rounds out with Mayor Norman Richardson, and Councilmen Jim McCracken and David Hampton, whose terms are up in 2016.
